I was using a Saffire Pro 40 card on a macbook via FireWire. I now need to use it on a mac mini and it only has Thunderbolt ports and no Firewire.
I've got a Firewire to Thunderbolt adapter and power the sound card with a power supply, but it simply doesn't get listed in System Information.
The manufacture mentions it should work:
Thunderbolt™ Compatible In common with all Focusrite Saffire interfaces, Saffire PRO 40 is compatible with Thunderbolt ports via the use of a FireWire to Thunderbolt adaptor (not included). An external power supply is recommended for use in Thunderbolt applications, particularly when using phantom power.
Has anyone else experienced this ? What should I check ?
How can I get a Saffire Pro 40 working via Thunderbolt on a mac mini ?
